"Cross-sectional Atlas of the Brain" provides for the first time a set of high-resolution color cross-sections of the human brain (six times higher than that of the only complete data set available to date), each image accompanied by state-of-the-art MRI and CT scans of the same specimen. The sections were made at an interval of 147 micrometers of frozen tissue, virtually artifact free, with the blood vessels filled at sub-millimeter level. The more than two hundred detailed and fully annotated images in this atlas provide a complete body of reference to the gross anatomy of the brain. The accompanying line drawings of these images provide a roadmap for easy orientation.
The unparalleled resolution of the images also made it possible to derive cross-sections of the same specimen in all standard orientations--sagittal, coronal, and axial--through multi-planar computer-aided reformatting. This feature, which eliminates inter-subject variability, has never before been available in an anatomical atlas and makes the atlas especially useful for identifying and following anatomical structures in each plane. About the Companion DVD
(View a sample in PDF format)
While the book itself contains 93 images (44 axial, 28 coronal, and 21 sagittal), the DVD contains the complete series of 1,481 axial images from one anatomic specimen from which the 44 axial images in the book were selected. These images were made at a resolution of 1525x1146 or 147 m/pixel with a digital camera. The axial images are accompanied by 1,528 sagittal and 1,146 coronal images that were made by reformatting and reslicing the axial images. By placing these images side-by-side-by-side the DVD allows the user tosee a particular region of the brain in all three orientations-axial, sagittal and coronal-simultaneously. These images are further accompanied by radiologic data. The DVD also allows the user to view a synchronized slide show of the images in all three planes. Images on the DVD that also appear in the book are highlighted with a blue background.
"Cross-sectional Atlas of the Brain" will be an essential reference for neuroscientists and clinicians (neurologists, radiologists, and neurosurgeons).
Human Anatomy and Physiology: Form, Function, and Homeostasis helps students understand the human body in terms of the structures and functions of various body systems. Clear and concise, the selected material provides descriptions of how major organ systems, individual organs, tissues, and cells interact to maintain homeostasis. The text establishes a conceptual framework for studying anatomy and physiology at the molecular, cellular, and systematic levels. The major chapters of the text include the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems. Chapters that focus on physiology begin with case studies that highlight major concepts and progress to discussions of the major processes that regulate homeostasis. All chapters include a list of learning outcomes that are aligned with a collection of study questions. Many standard texts provide more information than can be covered, even in a standard, two-course progression. Human Anatomy and Physiology streamlines information and focuses on the most important aspects of human form and function in a no-frills, non-intimidating manner. The book is specifically designed for standard two-course sequences in anatomy and physiology, and is best suited to students who have completed a semester of biology.

Human Anatomy - Multimedial Interactive Atlas is made of a paper support (three volumes) and a web platform (Virtual Campus), combining an innovative learning strategy for anatomy based on a precise representation of the anatomical structures and virtual spaces in the live human. The Paper Atlas follows a regional and topographic approach. Each illustrated chapter provides: * Anatomical drawings masterfully made with a high educational impact * Stratigraphic sequences to reconstruct the organization of anatomical regions * Realistic 2D and 3D rendering from CT or MR imaging exams * Photographs of laparoscopic and endoscopic exams * Clear legends, summary tables and schemes to facilitate learning * Recall icons to web platform contents. The web platform Virtual Campus, so innovative in the Anatomy Atlas world, displays a rich collection of didactic material content: * Video lectures of Topographic Anatomy guided the user through resources related to the specific topic * 3D interactive reconstruction of organs or anatomical regions from CT or MR exams * Commented laparoscopy and endoscopy videos * Commented dissection movies * Interactive stratigraphic animations
In this collection, the authors review temporal control of tissue homeostasis and repair by the circadian system. The molecular regulation of circadian timing has been well-characterized in several species as a highly conserved transcriptional feedback loop that maintains roughly 24-hour cellular periodicity. A current challenge is determining how the outputs of the master clock affect peripheral oscillators and numerous biological processes. A subsequent study seeks a more detailed understanding of the physiology and molecular mechanism underlying circadian changes in the plasma of glucose, which might allow for the identification of novel targets for the developing therapeutic approached to the diabetes and obesity diseases. Procambarus acanthophorus, a burrower crayfish, follows a nocturnal circadian rhythm due to the way it spends long periods of time building tunnels to reach the water table during the dry season. Therefore, it follows that this species must have a close relationship with soil. The authors suggest that soil might be an ecological factor with high perceived value, influencing ecological aspects, and physiological functions such as growth, reproduction, and organization of the circadian system. The genes involved in the maintenance of circadian rhythm and its impact on the immunological system are described as disruption of the circadian rhythm leads to significant alterations of the organism and is associated with several biological responses. In the concluding review, some of the most useful characteristics of zebrafish for studying the molecular, cellular, and behavioral aspects of the circadian clock system are described. Zebrafish have been established as an attractive vertebrate model for the examination of light signaling pathways and their impact on the cellular clock because zebrafish cellular clocks have an unusual attribute of being directly light responsive. Additionally, the molecular components of the mammalian and zebrafish cellular clocks are highly similar.
Recent evidence proving the molecular link between unchecked,
chronic inflammation and cancer has implicated the transcription
factor NF-kB as a key factor in both inhibiting apoptosis and
promoting cell proliferation. Since its initial identification 20
years ago as a simple regulating factor in one small part of the
immune response, NF-kB is proving to be the most protean of all
transcription factors. It has been shown to function in most cell
types as a key regulator of a number of inducible genes. Research
on the responsibilities and resulting pathologies of NF-kB has been
prolific, but until now there has been no consolidated,
This book systematically describes the angioarchitecture of the spinal cord. Microradiographs of superficial and intrinsic arterial supply and venous drainage patterns provide the anatomical basis needed to understand spinal vascular disorders. These post mortem studies are supplemented by clinical spinal angiographies and case studies.Rapid advances in imaging technology have facilitated the solution of many diagnostic problems concerning diseases of the spine and spinal cord. But this is less true for vascular diseases of the spinal cord or diseases secondarily involving them. Furthermore, safely using interventional procedures or open surgery still requires a profound knowledge of the vascular anatomy involved. Accordingly, a growing demand for training in this special field has become evident over the last 25 years, making improvement of this knowledge in all Neuro-Specialities dealing with diagnostic and therapeutic problems of spinal disorders a highly desirable goal.
The skull is the most morphologically complex bony region in the
human body, and "Atlas of the Human Skull "is an easy-to-use
comprehensive atlas dedicated solely to its anatomy. This atlas
presents such an extensive coverage of the human skull that even
the most inexperienced student can identify its features. It is
designed to be used by medical and dental students as well as
practicing dentists and radiologists.
